It was a chilly November morning and I'd been looking forward to this day. It had been written on my calendar for a couple of weeks now: a road trip day with Angela! Angela is a dear friend of mine, and I try to make it to every event I can to hear her speak. (Angela's first poetry memoir was published this year! Find it here.) This event was particularly cool, because Angela had been asked to speak/read some of her poetry at Chop Suey Books in Richmond. I love downtown Richmond, in all its hipness, but Chop Suey is a gem of old. Check them out next time you're around town. They buy and sell used (and new) books! Plus they have a really chill cat named WonTon. He'll be there to greet you at the door.
Well, today was absolutely fantastic. I hosted my first ever "mini-session" event today, at my studio, at Spitzer Arts Center and it was a wonderful success!
Well, where to begin? This wedding was a complete dream. Every detail, every person involved, the venue, the flowers and don't even get me started on that DRESS!! I met Saralyn years and years ago, in high school and thanks to Facebook we have been able to keep up with each other's lives! :)
Saralyn reached out to me a few weeks after her engagement and asked if I would be interested in photographing her engagement photos, (um, duh) between her and Rikki, I'd have so much gorgeousness in front of my camera! :) Their engagement session can be found here.
Rikki and Saralyn's Wedding took place at Trump Winery in Charlottesville, VA. We hope you enjoy the photos! Stay tuned for Part II!
